DIY honeycomb softbox grid

I've been wanting to pick up a grid or two for my little 24"x24" softboxes, but they typically run about $150. Ouch! There are a number of DIY grid projects on the internet, but most are fashioned from paper - a medium which doesn't lend itself to being portable, storable, and durable... not to mention presentable.


How about a professional style fabric honeycomb grid that is easy to attach, simple to store, and hardy? Yes, it can be made for less than $10. In fact I made two for $15. And they work great! Putting one of these grids together is about as simple as, well, playing with scissors, connecting the dots, and stapling stuff.
